The joys of train travel

So to come from Cardiff up to North Wales I chose the 17:21 Holyhead train. No need to change. Straight through from Cardiff to Shotton. At Hereford we were told that two trains were now hitched together so could we please all move into the first three carriages. So we did. Then the announcer on the train told us were going to Manchester Piccadilly. This perturbed me somewhat. The guard came through and I said,"I used to be on the Holyhead train." "Don't worry. We'll sort it all out at Shrewsbury." And they did. We returned to our hindmost carriages, we're given a free drink, and I arrived in Shotton just 11 minutes late.
